Spring is right around the corner, and the Winter Wonderland that was once Worcester is slowly but surely melting. We’ve had some beautiful sunny days here on the Hill and, although it’s still cold, April will soon be here.
I assumed Spring break would be a welcome departure from the still-snowy conditions here on campus. Not so. Although I was hundreds of miles south of here, in Pennsylvania, the biggest snowstorm of the year hit Philadelphia the week I was home. I brought the Worcester weather with me and spent much of the break in my house. I was able to spend a lot of time with my family, though, and bonded with my dog, a pug named Chloe.
I’ve recently gotten into sampling all the delicious restaurants Worcester has to offer (Worcester is a HUGE foodie spot). Last night we ate at 7Nana, a fancy hibachi restaurant on Shrewsbury Street, and had dessert at Sweet, a trendy dessert bar that has been featured on many Food Network Shows. My other favorite spots are Via, Volturno, and Mezcal. I brought my parents to the Flying Rhino Cafe, also on Shrewsbury Street and owned by a fellow Philadelphian, and it may just be their new favorite restaurant. If you’re not sure what to do on a Friday or Saturday night, I highly recommend all of these spots!
I was also chosen to be a Resident Assistant next year for sophomore girls in my current dorm, Mulledy! Although it’s a further walk to get to than other dorms, Mulledy has a great sense of community and camaraderie, especially among girls who have lived here for two years. As an RA, I’ll be living in a beautiful suite (a nice perk of the job!) and working with my peers to make our hall a fun and safe place to live. I’m honored to have been accepted and look forward to working with Residence Life!
Until next year, I’ll be spending this semester planning spring events such as Mr. Mulledy, our dorm’s male beauty pageant, trying new restaurants in Worcester, and as always, writing and learning a lot.
Have a lovely few weeks!
